Banksy has been busy recently

Banksy seems to be getting a lot of news coverage recently. This time for getting someone to sell off his art for cheap in a street stall in Central Park, New York.

 

Some people appear to have bargains, with the artwork being advertised as $60, one woman even bartered to get the price down. The actual value of the artwork is about $20,000 so they were a real bargain. I wonder if they knew they were buying genuine banksy works.
